If you’re the type that spends your entire 8:08 from Chappaqua ride talking about toy trains, here’s something for you. Lionel has issued a 25th-anniversary commemorative Metro-North toy train set. Selling for $280, the set includes one powered M-7 car with electronic horn, three non-powered M-7s with illuminated interiors and manual doors, 12 railroad trailblazing signs, various figurines, and a 40-inch by 60-inch track.
You can also separately purchase a Metro-North branded station and a canopied station platform.
The set will be on display at the Harmon Open House this Saturday. You can order the set through Lionel.com and pick it up at the Transit Museum.
